Book Review-Sisters in Love Snow Sisters, Book One Love in Bloom Series-Melissa Foster (18+)

Friday, September 20, 2013

I actually received this e-book because I agreed to read and review the second book in this series by Melissa Foster. I am so glad I was able to read it, I enjoyed it thoroughly and read it in one sitting (on my computer much less!). As in most families with a couple of siblings one is deemed by the parents to be smart and is "encouraged" to make the most of her brains. The other, well is pretty much left alone to do what she wants. The eldest became a psychologist and was very good at it. She actually wanted to do something totally different with her life but bowed down to the pressure from her parents. The younger sister has problems with relationships and flits from one "boyfriend" to another. The reason will be revealed in the book itself!

Enter a "PLAYER"-a tall, dark and extremely handsome man who excels at one night stands. His business partner suggests that he go see a psychologist. Before this can happen his partner dies in a skiing accident leaving behind his wife and teenage son. Devastated by his friend and business partners death and suddenly realizing that the life he is leading is not one that he really wants he makes an appointment with the psychologist--at this point I am going to put an excerpt from the book--it is almost a comedy of errors!!

About the Book:

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**
Sisters in Love is the first book in the Love in Bloom series. Be sure to pick up the next book in the series, Sisters in Bloom! Love in Bloom is a 9-book series with one full-length novel released every 30 days!

Danica Snow has always been the smart, practical, and appropriate sister. As a therapist, she prides herself on making reasonable, conservative choices, even if a bit boring, and as part of the Big Sister Program, she has little time for anything more in her life.

Blake Carter is a player. He never gets bored of conquering women, and with his sexy good looks and successful lifestyle, he has no trouble finding willing participants. When his friend and business partner dies in a tragic accident, he suddenly, desperately, wants to change his ways. The problem is, he doesn't know how to stop doing what he does best.

When Blake walks into Danica's office, the attraction between them is white hot, but Danica isn't the type to give into the heat and risk her career. Danica's desire sets her on a path of self-discovery, where she begins to question every decision she's ever made. Just this once, Danica wants to indulge in the pleasures of life she's been so willingly ignoring, but with her Little Sister in turmoil and her biological sister's promiscuousness weighing heavily on her heart, she isn't sure it's the right time to set her desires free.

Chapter 1 - An excerpt

The line in the café went all the way to the door. Danica Snow wished she hadn’t taken her sister Kaylie’s phone call before getting her morning coffee. Living in an overcrowded tourist town could be a major inconvenience, but Danica loved that she could walk from her condo to her office, see a movie, have dinner, or even stop at a bookstore without ever sitting in a car. Every minute counted when you lived in Allure, Colorado, host to an odd mix of hippie and yuppie tourists in equal numbers. The ski slopes brought them in the winter, while art shows drew them in the summer. There was never a break. Every suit and Rasta child in town was standing right in front of her, waiting for their coffee or latte, and the guy ahead of her had shoulders so wide she couldn’t easily see around him. Danica tapped the toe of her efficient and comfortable Nine West heels, growing more impatient by the second. What on earth was taking so long? In seven minutes they’d served only one person. The tables were pushed so close to the people standing in line that she couldn’t step to the side to see. She was gridlocked. Danica leaned to the right and peered around the massive shoulder ahead of her just as the owner of that shoulder turned to look out the door. Whack! He elbowed her right in the nose, knocking Danica’s head back. Her hand flew to her bloody nose. “Ow! Geez!” She ducked in pain, covering her face and talking through her hands. “I think you broke my nose.” Each word sent pain across her nose and below her eyes. “I’m so sorry. Let me get you a napkin,” a deep, worried voice said. Two patrons rushed over and shoved napkins in her direction. “Are you okay?” an older woman asked. Tears sprang from the corners of Danica’s closed eyes. Damn it. Her entire day would now run late and she probably looked like a red-nosed, crying idiot. “This hurts so bad. Weren’t you looking where—” Danica flipped her unruly, brown hair from her face and opened her eyes. Her venom-filled glare locked on the man who had elbowed her— the most beautiful specimen of a human being she had ever seen. Oh shit. “I’m… What…?” Come on, girl. Get it together. He’s probably an egomaniac. “I’m so sorry.” His voice was rich and smooth, laden with concern. A thin blonde grabbed his arm and shoved a napkin into his hand. “Give this to her,” she said, blinking her eyelashes in a come-hither way. The man held the woman’s hand a beat too long. “Thanks,” he said. His eyes trailed down the blonde’s blouse. Really? I’m bleeding over here.

Well, I think you get the picture-----now go get this book--it is delightful and I am going to start reading Book 2 in this series as soon as I write this one up--of course you will have to wait on my review for that one until 10/13!

Hi Michele,
I'm so glad you enjoyed Danica, Blake, Kaylie and Chaz! I have fallen in love with them and am now 7 books into the series (LOVE IN BLOOM), which now consists of three Snow Sisters books, and then 6 Bradens books. You'll meet the Bradens in Book three of the Sisters.

Fair warning - they get really flaming hot as the books go on...

This sounds like a steamy read. Something I would have chosen before babies took up all my reading time. Soon I'll be able to read again!

Kelli Avery said...

The excerpt makes the book sound really good. Along with your description at the top. I wouldn't normally read a novel of this kind, however it tends to touch home between my sisters and I.
